The Darod clan has formed an autonomous region named Puntland, complete with its own President and system of administration. The clan traces its ancestry to Abdirahman bin Isma’il al- Jabarti, a descendant of Prophet Muhammad. The clan inhabits the northern region, with communities in Gedo and Kismayo and its subgroups being the Harti, Ogaden, and the Marehan. The Darod remain suspicious of the Southern clans, and this has hindered political unification of Somali.
